Football career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Colombo was the product of A.C. Milan youth rank. He was on loan to Valdagno (Serie C2), Fiorenzuola (Serie C1), Solbiatese (Serie C2) and Monza (Serie B), before joining Milan's first team at the first half of 1999–00 season.


In January 2000, he joined Calcio Padova (Serie C2). He helped the club promote to Serie C1 in summer 2001, but the following season he made only one appearance. He became the first choice goalkeeper again in summer 2003.

He made 126 league games for the club, before joining San Marino Calcio (Serie C1).

In San Marino, he just missed one Serie C1 games, out of 34 (plus two relegation playoff ties).


Since the departure of Gianluca Pagliuca and Emanuele Manitta, Colombo and Francesco Antonioli were signed by Bologna as backup and first choice keepers respectively.

In May 2010, at the end of Serie A season, he was borrowed by AC Milan for club friendly against DC United.[1]


On August 2010 he signed one year contract as first choice keeper with Triestina (Serie B).[citation needed]
